You don’t need a turbine to harness the power of the wind. Easy, breezy chimes work just as well—not only are they a creative way to teach kids about air flow and how it works, but they’re also an awesome update your backyard décor. From egg cartons and ice cream spoons to seashells and tin cans, click through the gallery of cute wind chime crafts that will blow you away.

The sky’s the limit when your little artist reuses egg cartons to make these pretty pastel wind chimes. This project is a breeze to put together with a few supplies: egg cartons, watercolor paint, beads, bells and yarn. Get instructions for this eggs-ellent idea from Barbara over at ArtBar.
